'Distributed work' can be examined in three different dimensions. Firstly, it proposes a way to work in composition, in order to create a unique product composed of others' ideas that were formed at different times. Second, it offers a platform to work collaboratively via ad-hoc and long distance relationships to create a unique product together without working at the same institution or in the same place. Third, it allows the unfinished / open condition of the product to transform through the work of participants, users, or viewers.
As communication technologies become more widespread, the condition of work becomes more complex. How do these new work conditions affect work-life balance, time flexibility, creativity, motivation, quality, and mobility?
